All I Want For Christmas Is…

I’m back again with Monday Listicles! It took me a while to get this up because I’ve been sleeping all day, but you still have time to make my Christmas wishes come true.

1. The perfect pair of brown leather boots.

2. A clean bathroom.

3. A ginormous TV over the mantle so I can watch A Christmas Story in front of the fireplace.

4. All of our home flooring completed.

5. To find that Amelia’s completely potty trained and finished with diapers.

6. Dozens of frosted sugar cookies, picture perfect, not baked by me.

7. A weekend escape for Elijah and I with nothing planned but watching TV and eating takeout, just like we used to do before we had kids.

8. Snow. Just over Christmas Eve/Christmas Morning. (Note: It should be melted by the time I head for work that evening.)

9. To find that those pesky last ten pounds had finally disappeared for good.

10. The ability to keep the sweet Christmas memories alive year round.

    Ditto on the potty training and the clean bathroom. I think both require miracles though!

    I would love the perfect pair black boots that don't cost a ton of money. Although if I don't have to pay for them then I'll take them!

    Oh how I'd love a clean bathroom without having to actually clean it myself!

    The caveat with the snow wish is to only have it for a few hours. It's one of the perks I enjoy living in Texas!

    Hope you get some sunshine to melt that snow away soon!

    We are definitely going to need magic with Amelia. She is already 32 months old and refuses to even SIT on her potty chair without a diaper on. I'm at a total loss, her brother was potty trained by his grandparents at 28 months while Elijah and I were in Mexico. I'm thinking we need another getaway.

    Seriously. Is there anything worse than cleaning badly aimed urine off a toilet? I hate bathrooms and floors…yick.

    Number 7 is probably my favorite. I so miss those weekends of pajamas, delivery and crap TV marathons. Someday…

    I was just at Macy's and they are having a huge boots sale. Maybe you can find a reasonably priced pair to wrap for yourself this year.

    Number 5 is on my wish list too. I am so tired of diapers and trying to potty train.

    Amelia is a wreck and no where near being ready for potty training. She refuses to go without wearing a diaper, I mean screaming tantrum, full on fit, if we don't immediately put one on her. At this point, Santa is my only hope.
